Founded in 1826, the Alumni Association of Nassau Hall was organized "to promote the interests of the College and the friendly intercourse of its graduates." With first president of the Alumni Association (and fourth President of the United States) James Madison, Class of 1771, at its helm, the Alumni Association immediately began to engage Princetonians in organized alumni activity. Approximately 190 years later, the Alumni Association of Princeton University, with more than 90,000 undergraduate and graduate alumni members, continues to thrive.

Throughout this Web site, you will find examples of ways for Princeton alumni to engage with Princeton and with each other. We invite you to explore the many opportunities available, from events on campus or across the globe, to educational programming, to ways to volunteer, connect online or network together.

Most of all, we hope that you will stay involved and stay in touch with "the best old place of all."
